Harvest of Peace: Fall Equinox Celebration

September 22 / 10:00 AM - September 22 / 3:00 PM

This auspicious day is a time for our Asheville community to gather, hear teachings by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and celebrate the richness of our Shambhala lineage and local culture.

When we gather as a community to catch up with one another and practice with our community as a whole, it helps rouse each other's energy towards our shared aspiration of a kind and awake society.

Please bring a dish to share or a dessert!

Contact Linda Greenup if you have any questions: 865-310-4194.

If you are planning to come with your children please let us know so we can make arrangements for them to be taken care of :-)
